Garden Meatballs

Garden Meatballs

Turkey is high in tryptophan, which supports balanced serotonin and stimules feel-full hormones so you feel satiated.These meatballs may be prepared in advance and frozen in freezer bags, divided evenly among 12 bags. On the day you plan to use them, thaw them in the refrigerator. They can be eaten cold or slightly warmed. — Haylie Pomroy
